"WHY I LOVE WALES AND ITS’ FOOD" - LEGENDARY CHEF MICHEL ROUX JR
In a recent interview with SME Wales, MICHEL Roux Jr admitted he does not get across to Wales as often as he would like. He was here not long ago to enjoy a shark-fishing trip off the Carmarthenshire coastline, but our nation and its’ food is never too far away from the mind of the renowned Chef or, for that matter, from the table at his two Michelin starred restaurant, Le Gavroche, in London’s Mayfair.
Talking about Wales and its rich food history Michel further added: “Wales has fantastic food. I love the Gower Peninsula cockles, the shrimps and the seafood. Then there is the Welsh hill lamb, which is revered all over the world.”
“You have wild sea trout and other freshwater river fish and there are other products that Wales is less well known for, like Welsh Black beef.”
